RICHLAND, Wash.-- The Richland School Board met Friday to discuss several school programs, but their retreat concluded with an executive session about Superintendent Jim Busey and an investigation into alleged inappropriate conduct.
The Richland School Board discussed a variety of topics Friday, but one topic that's still very important for many parents and families is what the future holds for Superintendent Jim Busey.
The school district hired an investigator to look into allegations that Busey acted inappropriately by having a relationship with another district employee.
The school board said the investigation should be finished by early next week and the board plans to meet on Tuesday to make a decision about how to deal with the information that's revealed in the report.
"Our decision is going to be based on the facts as presented by the investigator. We're going to have some deliberations and figure out what next steps to take, if any," said Rick Jansons, Richland School Board President.
The school board also discussed school safety at Friday's meeting and conducting a vulnerability assessment to find the best ways to protect Richland schools. Board members also talked about charter school options.
